Panhandle Teen Accused Of Beating, Stabbing Mother

GULF BREEZE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Panhandle authorities say a teenager is charged with murder after allegedly beating and stabbing his mother to death.

According to the Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office, the Gulf Breeze teen and his mother had been arguing Tuesday night when the 17-year-old attacked her with kitchen knives and a baseball bat.

The woman died at the scene. The sheriff’s office says the teen was found hours later at a nearby home, where he surrendered.
